Do you live in sunny Southern California? Florida? Corpus Christi, Texas? The Australian Outback! (Helloooooo down there! My kids want to know, “What is it like to walk upside down?”) Are you feeling a mite sweaty? Feeling a bit too clammy? Does your arm hurt from fanning yourself so much? Is your skin painfully supple? Ya know… I just feel soooo sorry for ya that I am compelled to let you have a wee bit of my snow.
We woke up this morning to a gorgeous coating of snow. It’s still January so I still don’t hate it and I don’t curse at it and say, “I should be planting things and watering things and pulling weeds and… and… and…” I’ll feel that way somewhere around late February, early March… and definitely when our last snowfall hits us (usually around the last week of May.) So this morning when I saw that there was snow clinging to every part of everything outside, I just had to jump into my boots and go take a picture or 35. My kids were shocked when I came back in the house and they discovered I was still in my pajamas.
Oh, calm down. They were yoga pants and a t-shirt. Okay? Nobody knew they were my PJs okay? Okay?! Oh and I did put a coat on too.
So, I went to all that trouble for you, dear reader who lives in a veritable sauna compared to this place which is dryer than a rye crisp cracker spread with a nice thick layer of antiperspirant, because I know how much you miss snow and how you would give anything to experience just a little bit of winter now and then.
So here you go. Winter, without the mittens.
